Mission Statement

We Keep Kids in School

Description

Children cannot learn at their potential when they are in crisis or face significant non-academic needs. Most students who drop out of school are dealing with multiple problems that present barriers to their education: poverty, unattended health needs, hunger, an unemployed parent, domestic violence. Communities In Schools is a dropout prevention program. Through campus-based programs and special projects, Communities In Schools creates a network of volunteers, social services, businesses, and community resources that work together to break down barriers and help students succeed. And the formula works: last year, 97% of the students referred to Communities In Schools stayed in school. Communities In Schools-Central Texas serves thousands of children and families every year, providing options where there once were none. With your help, Communities In Schools can help kids stay in school and become productive members of the Central Texas workforce and community.
